MDK10 and Apache, MySql & PhP

Please forgive me I am new and trying to get a laptop set up as a webserver to learn the web design using MySQL & PhP.

MDK 10 seemed a very useful package, I had tinkered briefly with Mandrake before and it happened to be on a magazine cover disk.

Got the machine up and running, networked and connecting to the net, apache seemed fine could get the localhost connection up fine but then I ran into a wall. Trying to get info relative to the apche version on MDK 10, seems all the tutorials point to different directories and different files, I cant seem to find anything that gives a good guide to the enhance apache webserver MDK 10 uses or anything on configuring PHP & MySql to use it.

I am a mere beginner so a good howto would be great - most the ones I find are for the older versions of apache/mysql/php or for windows set ups.

ANy advice given gratefully recieved.

By default Mandrake 10 comes with the ADVX server (, it is based upon Apache at heart but has a few extra things. It also comes with MySql and PHP configured automatically so if you choose the right options when installing you shouldn't need to do anything.

The best tool for configuring all your system services is webmin.
In your file manager type the following url


If that doesn't work try


Use root as your username. From here you can load and configure all the modules used by databases, servers and php.
